MATCHING PLEDGE FOR SAINT ANDREW’S CAMP NEW BUILDING PROJECT
Saint Andrew’s Camp is raising funds for the building of a new Kitchen, Dining Hall and Activities Center. An architectural drawing of the proposed facility, which will cost an estimated $300,000, is shown below. At last year’s Diocesan Assembly, it was decided that every parish would take up a Collection for the benefit of this building project, and benefactors who have been blessed by God would be urged to contribute toward the cost of this new facility for our youth. Already $60,000 has been donated or pledged! An Anonymous Donor has offered a Matching Pledge: For every dollar donated for the new building in the month of July, the Anonymous Donor will match each contribution – up to $10,000! Our diocesan parishes, organizations and faithful are urged to help the Camp’s Building Project by donating this month, and having their contribution matched by this Anonymous Donor. All contributions should be made out to “Saint Andrew’s Camp” – earmarked for the “New Building Project” – and mailed to: Diocesan Chancery, 33 Hewitt Avenue, Bronxville NY 10708. "May God bless all those who contribute toward this new facility at our youth camp – with all the good things that come from His hands." ~ With love and prayers, + Archbishop Michael
